What people are saying about Newport, Rhode Island

Perfect weather helped make this a great tour. The tour guide was engaging and witty. I should have gone through the tour twice, as I don't recall all of the history and details. It's truly a solid choice in learning about Newport.

The boat was spacious and the upper deck lovely. The bar was an added bonus. I have been out on Narragansett Bay many times, but without a tour guide. This gave me a new perspective and new information.

Personable and well informed crew. Cruise gave us a great look at multiple mansions and sites from a different perspective than you can see from the street.

Great starter outing when first arriving to Newport!! Interesting little tidbits of information to know for the remainder of your stay! Thank you!

Very enjoyable. No problem getting the tickets on GetYourGuide. A bar onboard Good narration, nice people, great scenery. What's not to like?
